If It Ain't Raining......

........ then it ain't training. Well that's how the saying goes. Needless to say today I got soaked whilst doing some training and it got me thinking. Does some evil rain god watch down and see us at it? Are we unlucky? Is it that we just remember getting cold and wet a lot more than we do being warm and dry?

Now I cast my mind back I can picture lying on warm grass with the sun beating down on me while I await my turn to fire on a shooting range. I can remember having been cold and wet and then feeling the warmth of the sun begin to dry me out and take the cold out of my bones.

I also remember never really drying out for four weeks and of being that wet that my fingers started to wrinkle.

So if you are up there then I wish you'd bloody stop it.
